I want to know that there is a separate Varanasi Division in NER Zone, then why Varanasi Jn is not under that zone. And then BSBS is under that zone. If we see this according to the area/map then BSBS is separate from its zone due to BSB, Kashi Station in between and then continues from BSBS to Prayagraj Rambagh. Further, why LKO and LJN having 2 diff zones?

Why such complex map?

So, we can easily say that BSB is controlled by both the zones, but it mainly belongs to NR only. For some specific services NER is responsible like 12561,15022 and many more.

BSB is controlled by NR completely, only a few platforms are used by NER to attend their trains from BCY side, also ones coming from BSBS. This was the reason that in initial days VB used to originate from PF5. I'm not sure about the current situation. Maybe a some other member can explain it better.

Its under NR but pf 1 to 3 is under lease to NER for their operations... But i guess the lease has been stopped now as pf 1 to 3 cgs show NR now not NER anymore..
And no bsb dvsn (ner) train operates from bsb jn now
All shifted to bsbs and bcy..
to cnf this from bsb dvsn

In simple words. NER meter gauge zone tha. LJN entirely aur BSB PF1,2,3 meter gauge the. Issiliye ye NER control karta tha. Ab NER ke khud ke stations bade BG terminals ban gaye hain, to it is operating from there.

As for BSB in NR, broad gauge station NR me aa gaya. Aur NR aur uske unions apne aaspas har bade station ko apne control me rakhna chahte hain, to BSB is still in NR.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
